I sincerely declare that this book can be a movie! I have been intrigued once again, by Mr Johnson's Little Black Girl Lost (LBGL) series. This is the first time I have ever reviewed/commented on a literary piece via internet. I rate the book with four stars versus five because I just did not get enough (no offense) but a compliment to Mr Johnson that he must continue the saga. I was nearly mad that the the book was over when I finished reading it. I was having the urge to start writing LBGL 6 the very minute I read the last page. I want to know more about Ibo's daughter's liasion with the . . . oh Mr. Keith I promise not to spill the news! I only found a few historical errors in the book one is in reference to Australia and the other referred to the rights that the free people of color had. But, I strongly do understand that the book was written more for entertainment versus a true biography. I consider myself to be a loyal reader and pre- ordered LBGL 5 and I am ready to pre-order Book 6- 10. Then at the end Mr.Johnson had the nervers to ask me some questions, lol. Overall, the book was exciting, a page turner, had me laughing, shocked and visualizing the scenes . . . and I didnt want to put the book down to go to sleep at night. I am a Louisiana native and in the past few years I have been doing leisure research on black people and it's heritage in Louisiana known as les gens de couleur libre. I personally can trace some heritage to this notion on my maternal ancestry. Therefore, I feel some connection to the book that is written by Mr. Johnson.

As we say down in da boot "Laissez les bon temps rouler" . . with your next LBGL.

Format: Paperback
What can I say about such a wonderful novel? First off, this is not the average novel. The whole series was enthralling to say the least. There was so much depth and realism, that i wondered if this story a real life memoir of sorts. This novel satisfied me on so many level. Mind you this is a close to 400 page book and I read it in a day and a half. I simply could not put it down. Aspiring authors could only hope to craft a story as detail and twisted as Mr. Johnson has done himself. The narration of the story was cosmic and generously told, but not overly so. It was drenched in history and truths that made me think outside of the page of the book and into my own life, which is rare with reads these days. One can only hope for a part 6. I would love to get to know Josephine Baptiste in full and it would really bring the series full circle. Thank you Mr. Johnson for another top notch read. It is always a pleasure to read your work.

So after reading this book I finally got to know who Josephine Baptiste is, in Johnnie Wise's lineage of women. For some reason I thought Lauren was going to change her name or something. Anyway, this book picks up right where four left off, actually the last chapter of four is the first chapter in five.

Johnson has done it again, created another hit that I am sure the followers of the Little Black Girl Lost series will enjoy. There is so much scandal, deceit, lies and revenge in this book that keep the pages turning one after the other. The author does a great job in developing his story and making you want to reach the final end to see what happens next.

The beauty and conceit of his main character you can visualize by the vivid descriptions and dialogue. This book was very juicy and educational as well. I felt like I was learning about how life was for African Americans back in Slavery days. There were so many complex relationships and situations addressed in this book, such as the placage system, quadroon balls, and tignons that had me in awe.

It was really sad the way blacks were treated in this time, but I liked that Keith shed some light on some of the affluence that some of our people were accustomed to during those times that isn't really in history books.

I am the author of My Eyes Are Green and You Had Me at Hello and I learned so much from good story tellers such as Mr. Johnson.

I really enjoyed the book! This series captures you from beginning to end. I just wished that book 5 focused more on Lauren Bouvier and not as much on Mrs. Bouvier. This series really should be converted into a movie! LOVE YOU Keith Lee Johnson!! You are a brilliant author!

Josephine Baptiste's story is just as engaging and compelling as Johnnie's. I really enjoy the rich history and knowledge that Keith L. Johnson has put into each of his books detailing the life of one woman that spiraled into a life of many.

I'm looking forward to getting into the part the Beauregard's play in this saga. Seems the next installment should be just the treat I've been waiting on. Then after that, I want to read Johnnie's mother story. With writing like Mr. Lee's I can continue to read up until LBGL 24 and beyond LMAO! I'm always up for learning things that happened in history that's told as vivid and as vibrantly as the way Mr. Lee tells the LBGL series. The stories are well written and from the heart.

Don't keep us waiting Keith, come on with part 6!!!
